"The Hunger Games"
by: Suzanne Collins.
2008; 384 pages,
Drop everything, and read "The Hunger Games".
But be careful. Because once you start, you won't stop until you're finished.
The Hunger Games is one of the best books I've read in years. I put up there with "The Book Thief" - which if you know me is a glowing recommendation.
Have you read "The Lottery" by Shirley Jackson? (If not, you should.) It has a similar plot.
"The Hunger Games" is about a young woman who is selected to represent her distract in the national hunger games. 2 children (aged between 12 and 18) are selected from each of the 12 districts.
They are then put into an arena and forced to fight to the death.
That's all I'll say. Go read it.
